The festive season is celebrated differently in every home, let alone every country. Here are some of the more unique ways people will be celebrating around the world this year:
In Japan, sitting down to a traditional Christmas dinner means tucking into a KFC! Every Christmas season, an estimated 3.6 million Japanese families treat themselves to fried chicken. Getting your bargain bucket takes time, with many ordering weeks in advance or queuing out the door for hours if left too late!
Possibly one of the most unique celebrations comes in the form of The Night of the Radishes festival in Oaxaca, Mexico. Every year, hundreds of radishes are carved into intricate sculptures of everything imaginable. Once Oaxaca’s radish-artists are done, the humble radish barely resembles something you might ever eat at the dinner table!
Over in Norway, if you order the traditional ‘Smalahove’ you might well find yourself faced with a whole steamed sheep’s head! It’s advised to eat the ear and eye first, as these are the fattiest parts, whilst the brain is spooned out and boiled or fried.
And finally, we don’t think they are still available, but the ‘Christmas Tinner’ that GAME released did give us a good chuckle. Created as a tongue-in-cheek quick option for gamers who didn’t want to miss a second of their brand new video game, this has to be the quirkiest Christmas dinner that Britain has produced.
